Control: severity -1 serious

Dear maintainer(s),

As recently announced [1], we are going to remove not only Qt 4 WebKit, but
Qt 4 as a whole in Buster. As removing Qt 4 WebKit is the first step, I am
raising the severity of this bug to serious.

Please port your package to Qt 5 if you do not want to get it removed from
Debian. In Qt 5, the WebKit module is supported, and we are currently
preparing a major update based on 5.212 branch [2].
